|Spit Shined & Ready to Ride!|
My son added a few personal touches, a five year old biker in the making, he was particularly helpful this week keeping me company and losing my nuts and bolts. It's part of the adventure of home shop repair and modifications when you're a father of two! ;-)

I took my bike for a short spin today and admittedly, I had to tweak a few things here and there to get her just right and comfortable for riding. I love the fact that I am getting to know a new side of this bike as its been well over two years now that I have ridden with Ape Bars. I originally had 12 inch Apes on my Nightster. These Ape bars are only 10inches high but because of the high rake and profile of the Intruder, they actually feel much higher than the Apes I had on my Nightster.
So there you have it, a stock Suzuki Intruder transformed into something 'more me' in just a short period of time. Most importantly, my son feels like its now his bike too, an important part of nurturing his interest in an otherwise wonderful past time for most or, as in my case, a way of life. I can't wait for the day he will be old enough (and tall enough) to ride with me... I know what you're thinking, my wife says NO to sidecars.... sigh. Cheers!
